When we moved here last year we brought 8 suitcases weighing 75 pounds each. We have a few boxes in storage at Dh's grandma's house, but not a lot. (Mostly just sentimental stuff and stuff I couldn't afford to replace) We sold or gave away everything else. We had been blessed by so many people giving us things to set up our house, we wanted to bless someone else the same way. We know that if we ever have a need for those things again, God will provide the way for us to get them.When my mom and I moved to the U.S. from Germany she sold everything we had except our clothes, some of my toys, and our dog. Cost of shipping over the Atlantic was obviously a factor.
